Hauled from the wreckage

Dragged to the side of the road

So tear down the walls

Led here by fate

Went down on his knees
A
Reached up to the skies
Bm                                                 F#m
Said Lord I followed your way, won't you show me mine

They say at night

You hear him plead

With the devil below, for his soul's release

Chorus (2x):
F#m
So tear down the walls
F7
Storm through the barricades
Bm
There's fight in every corner
F#m
And a night to everyday

Solo 2:
F Minor Pentatonic


That's the bare bones of it.
Tips:
You must listen to the song to get a feel for the song.
The chorus is a choppy part where Davy alternates between downstrokes on the bottom 
and upstrokes on the top strings. Use chunky distortion to get the right sound.
The F7 chord has a little slide in it from the third to the fourth fret during the choruses.
In the verses, strum the chords and arpeggiate the top three strings.
The verses are played with a delay-type pedal which and slight tremolo effects.
For the solos, improvise dramatically.
Have fun, this is a great, impressive song.

This is a pretty good tab except that during the intro and chorus he's playing a C#7 chord

You are absolutely right about "don't miss out" on Davy. He is one of the most underrated musicians and performers. Saw him finally at the H of B in Dallas in 2016 and got to talk with him a bit. As humble as he is great on guitar.

Been playing this song since about 2010 or so. Probably from this tab, too. Great job!
